American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Resources

In celebration of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics, AAPT has developed a new resource to help its members and the physics community teach about the science behind the Nobel Prize. The webpage, Neutrinos: The Science Behind the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics, contains articles from the AAPT publications The Physics Teacher and the American Journal of Physics.
